Alfred Sisley (1839-99) was one of the most prominent and historically significant landscape painters of the nineteenth century and a leading figure in the Impressionist movement.
His celebrated snow scenes of the Paris suburbs, and his views of the flooded Seine at Pont-Marly and the colourful regattas on the Thames achieve a superb tonal balance and poetic resonance, while also giving a lively depiction of their subjects.
Richard Shone brings a fresh eye and an intimate knowledge of the Ile de France to this, the most detailed and authoritative overview ever to be compiled of Sisley's life and works.
With an abundant wealth of illustrations and an absorbing text - now reiussued as an attractively priced paperback - this book reveals Sisley as an artist of seductive power and originality.
